Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This allows me to save my favorite fresh tomatoes after growing season is over. This includes especially the Celebrity, Bradley, and Creole varieties that I grow in my garden. While these frozen tomatoes are not good to slice or for salads, they are far better than regular canned tomatoes for cooking.
Love to all, Mimi
